Beta? didn't he say this was "released" and even had a big celebration over it?

....plus he charges for it.

"Beta" my ass.

You don't get it for free because it's a fully-functioning game, even if it's not feature-complete in the eyes of its creator. This is not a free trial of an MMO you get under the guise of playtesting, or a one-level demo of a shooter that they only call a "beta" so that you can't complain about it being shit. This is an actual beta of a game that is still a work-in-progress. At least he's honest with you about it.

Like many others who have bought and played Minecraft, I feel I've gotten 100 times more enjoyment for my money than I do most "AAA" games these days.
